floor and wall panel spacing

Recommended Posts

I can't remember this part when I did the kitchen a year ago.

How much (if any) spacing do I leave between the panel edges?

1) drywall

Shoot for anything between none and 1/4". If the gaps are larger, it's no big deal.

2) plywood subfloor

If it's over a conditioned space, you can butt them tight. If it's over an unconditioned crawlspace, I'd leave a gap about as wide as whatever nail I was using to fasten the sheets.

3) cement based backer boards

Anywhere between none & 1/4" or so.
